My sons youth sports team was scheduled to play in Charlottesville and the team manager had few options for hotels. I recalled staying at the Red Roof years ago while working in Charlottesville. My co-workers always stayed at the Red Roof due to its proximity to one of our offices and the overall value--but it had been almost 10 years since I last stayed there. Many parents were skeptical--a Red Roof? Everyone I spoke with after the stay was positive about the hotel.
The location of this hotel is the main selling point. Its right on Main St., across from the hospital, and at the edge of the main campus. If your going to explore the campus and the student oriented activities, this is a great location. I'd much rather be here than at the Hampton Inn on Main, but farther from campus. There is a Courtyard between the Hampton and Red Roof.
At the Red Roof there is a Mellow Mushroom and Jimmy Johns on-site, inside the hotel building. However, there are many more choices lining Main Street as far as you'd care to walk in either direction.
The hotel shows its age in places like the elevators, door keys, repaired chips in the bath tub, the ironing board hangs out in the open, small bathrooms, etc. but its been updated over the years and I found our room to be clean and well kept. Yes, the towels were scratchy and beds sit really low by todays standards, but the room was quiet and comfortable. I understand they are undergoing a renovation in the coming months.
The front desk staff was friendly and eager to help. Even the night security staff was very friendly. Somewhere I read they don't provide breakfast, but there were pre-packaged honey buns, granola bars, etc, in the lobby, along with juice and coffee. Honestly, with all the options nearby, I wouldn't eat here even if the breakfast was comparable to a Hampton.
